LUMBER HARVEST SET TO BEGIN

A local logger will soon begin harvesting a 96-acre red pine plantation on the southeast side of the intersection of Glidden Road and U.S. Highway 71 north of Bemidji. Harvest operations will begin in early September. Travelers should use caution and be aware of logging trucks and equipment. The DNR will reforest the site to a mixed pine forest representative of the local forest plant community. Timber from the harvest will provide local economic benefits to the logger, local trucking companies and area mills.
